About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

The blur sometimes is unavoidable but it does not detract from this

Fabulous shot, nevertheless, Martha. When I see wading birds like this one, with a meal near the end of the beak, I imagine them contemplating how to get the fish from the end of the beak to the throat without dropping it.

He did drop it but managed to pick it up again.

I do love your "up close and personal" shot of birds and this is a great example! Superb capture and such a beautiful one he/she is! Love it! Hope your day is going well, Martha! Enjoy!

Great photo - birds seldom stand right where we photographers want them to!
